Japanese media said the American concerns about North Korea to follow China’s anti-Iran’s ability to intervene

According to the Japanese “diplomats” magazine website December 2, Journal of the text, said security experts from around the world have been on China’s anti-intervention/area denial strategy carried out a detailed analysis, the main strategy is to use some of the delay or prevent a potential enemy weapons into specific areas of conflict.
article said that the pillars of the strategy is anti-ship missiles. The missile from the road, sea and air-launched, surface ships of the enemy poses a great threat. However, it is not using any new technology; only this weapon’s effective range, accuracy, speed and availability of flights have been greatly enhanced. Therefore, how to resist such weapons as top military headache. While the U.S. troops are in the Asia Pacific facelift advanced weapons, against the challenges of China; but they still face some of the problems caused by these weapons: other countries may have noticed that anti-access/area denial strategy, the U.S. advantage , but also to take such a strategy.
article said, this week, some experts in the “diplomat” magazine website published the article said that if North Korea and the United States and South Korea conflict, it will be asymmetric warfare between the two countries. The experts believe that this strategy will include submarines, special forces and anti-ship missiles. According to legend, Korea’s anti-ship missile technology weapons from the former Soviet Union, it is difficult for the United States or South Korea currently has a threat of offshore platforms. However, in last month’s missile test, North Korea from an old Soviet-made bombers on the first launch of an anti-ship missiles. Such missiles can the small patrol boats during the war, or to provide supplies for the South Korean military threat to merchant ships.
article said that while Iran has actively pursued the development of anti-ship missiles. In July, Iran test-fired a 186-mile range anti-ship missile, its warhead weight is 1433 pounds. Allegedly, the missile has a maximum speed of Mach 3. If the missile flying at this speed, the vessel is difficult to have time to deploy defensive measures. Once Iran’s Strait of Hormuz to deploy such a small area of ??the missile, it can control all the oil tankers through the Persian Gulf, but also delay the enemy surface fleet activities. Although Syria current domestic chaos, it has recently purchased a new anti-ship missiles. The military procurement contracts before signing on domestic problems, worth $ 300 million. However, many analysts believe that Russia at this time to deliver weapons to the West has been reluctant to build anti-missile system to change the position of punishment. Israel has already expressed concern about the arms sales, as this would pose a threat to its surface fleet. The missile range of Iran’s anti-ship missile with almost the same, about 190 miles. Worth noting that Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006 with a shore-ship missile hit an Israeli warship, killing four members killed in the attack.
article said, people conclude that, the withdrawal of surface ships can easily range anti-ship missiles, so that their combat ability would be impaired. However, this view is also problematic. First, China’s current anti-ship missiles with a range of about 1500-2700 km. If the U.S. Navy in other countries within the range anti-ship missiles, the country with short-range anti-ship missiles can pose a threat to them. A few years ago, China’s surprise appearance of a submarine aircraft carrier in the United States near the U.S. aircraft carrier was completely within its combat. In addition, in 2005 the deduction in a war, a loan from the Swedish Navy diesel-electric submarines to sink the United States “Ronald Reagan” aircraft carrier; the latter is a “Nimitz” class carriers. With diesel-electric submarine technology continues to evolve, even the most advanced technology in the United States is difficult to detect them, so the surface fleet should be vigilant. In fact, even without the advanced submarine countries, only in a small patrol boat loaded missile, able to carry out surprise attack.
article said that in view of this, senior military officers have been aware of the anti-intervention/area denial strategy to billions of dollars worth of damage caused by surface ships. The anti-intervention/strategy for the region refused to stop weapons are relatively cheap needed, which would mean they would have been greatly developed. (Sri Lanka-year)
